8 THE SUN, SUNDAY, MARCH 21, 1915. FLOWER SHOW IN GRAND CENTRAL PALACE AN EDUCATIONAL TREAT TO GROWERS AND ENTHUSIASTS F. R. Picrson's private rose garden. SrcVKS.SFl'ti beyond all expec . Uitlons-, more. gorgeous by far than was even hoped for nnd drawing crowds which fill tho .Grand Central Palace to overflow- Where the Expense Really Is When you pay a dollar for vegetables, the man who really did the work of growing them receives less than 35 of your money. The rest is taken up by the machinery of distribution. The trans portation Co., the commis sion merchant, the whole saler and the retailer and the delivery system all take their part and in the end you are paying several times what the actual cost amounts to. Stop it by becoming your own pro ducer. Make that waste place in back of your home produce a revenue. Planted with seeds of a recognized quality such as Henderson's, a plot 0 x 50 will produce all the vege tables a family will use during the summer. Try it this year.

Peter Henderson & Co. 35 and 37 Cortlntidt St. New York itig. tho Third International Show now In senHion Is beyond doubt a most remarkable success. Tim exhibition Is open to-day and will not close until Tuesday night. Not only are the managers and the exhibitors pleased, but the pufcllc has shown ltn opprwval by patron Irinic the exhibition In mich ft way aa to make the show an annual fix ture In New York. Each day since the ahow was opened the crowd was continually In creases until last night tho 1'alaco waa practically filled beyond the com fortablo point. However, every one who attended the show was repaid by viewing the remarkable collection of nature's handiwork. Many convert" were made to the circle of flora and from an educational standpoint th how has opened a pathway of Knowl edge which the Hverape New Yorker knew but little of heretofore. The fhow Is tepleto with features. The visitor upon entering the mam mouth Palace Is actually bewildered by the profusion of blooms and tho otrlklng display of rare plants whlcJi are strnngo to many eyes. Each day the flower displays are refreshened and the visitor sees no wilted pUnts. The show Is a perpetually sweetened and freshened display of flowers. The attendance tlKtires are said to be twice, thn.'c of the former two shows held In the Palace under the auspices of the Horticultural Foclet 1 of New York and the New York ' Florists Club. This fact Indicate i that the Interest In flowers has tn 1 creased considerably during the pat 1 year. Flower 1 There are a pair of remarkable rose gardens shown by P. It. Plerson, for mer Major of Tarrytown, N. Y., the chairman of the show committee, and A. N. Plerson, Inc . of Cromwell. Conn. In there gardens are rambler roses and other types. Including the new Francis Scott Key rose named after the author of "The Star Spangled nanner." These gardens are real works of art, giving spec tators tho feeling that the season Is June In stead of March. Many visitors were surprised to note what charmingly beautiful plantu ro grown In tho city parks, for tho Department of Parks display made through the lion. Calot Ward. Commissioner of Iarks, Horough of Mnnhattnn and Rich mond, reveals some wonderful ferns, including u Onreallta brought from the FIJI Inlands and cultivated In Manlmttan.

Japanese cherry tree .ind ninny (lowering bulbs, Jasml nlum. primulas and numerous ii.vort meiits. of decorative plants. While the main floor of the show contains the, more ptctaculnr exhibits, throngs raved over tho displays on tho mezzanine balcony, tho gorgeous ascension lilies, majestic In appear nnce, and tho phenomenal canary yel low (.'alia. Elllottlanu causing excla mations of del, ght. the spotted foliage forming Just the right background to urban or country homo and a ?ourco j of great pleasure. On thti floor Is I tho display of nzaletui, Imth Ohent and Indlcn, In flower: palms, ferns and other rure plants exhibited by tho Department of Parks. Tho Julius Itochrn Company shows a splendid col lection of French hydrangeas and private and commercial growers make wonderful displays of flowering bulbs and plants, among them n superb collection of Ctncrnrlu stcllata.

The exhibition Is too tnrffe to de scribe In an ordinary newspaper arti cle and too beautiful to do Justice to without adding numerous adjectives to our vocabulary.
